Kitchen and bathroom sink regularly clog and refuse to drain. If you get a whiff of foul odors from your drains or experience slow drainage and water backups, then it is time to pull out the plunger or call the experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing. Avoid clogged sinks by using soap and toothpaste moderately and toss hair shavings into the trash. Do not flush them down the drain. Likewise for kitchen sinks; toss food scraps, greases, fats, and oils into the trash bin instead of the kitchen sink.
Yes, clogs are super common. Toilet clogs are especially troublesome because a sewage backup can expose you to harmful pathogens, allergens, and bacteria. Do not flush anything down the toilet other than pee, poo, and toilet paper. Throw hygiene products, kitty litter, wet wipes, and everything else into the trash bin instead.
Leaky Faucets and Toilets
